Acadia Historic Trail


It's in Nova Scotia that starts Canadian History in early 17th century. After a really tough winter, the first french colons found Port-Royal in 1605, first permanent settlement in North America. Despite unceasing wars between France and England, the colony will grow progressively along the French bay until 1755 and gave birth to a proud, resilient and brave people: Acadians.

In 1755, British authorities, in connivance with the Governor of New England, decided to deport the Acadian people in order to take over their lands. Thousands of Acadians were captured, their lands and goods burnt, and families separated.

Today, there are at least 3.8 million descendants of those Acadians all around the world: 500 000 in the Maritime provinces here in Canada, 1 million in Louisiana, 1 million in New-England, 1 million in Quebec and around 300 000 in France.

Come discover the fascinating life of Acadians before the Deportation, how they managed to build their community, and the traces they left behind them. Come and visit those national historic sites telling you their story, search your ancestors, and enjoy the legendary hospitality of this still alive people in some regions of Nova Scotia. Follow the traces of those Founders of our country. We are waiting for you!
The Fédération acadienne de la Nouvelle-Écosse wishes to express its most sincere gratitude to the following persons and departments:
  • Canadian Heritage
  • Acadian Affairs and Francophonie 
  • May Bouchard, Bernice d'Entremont, Jean-Louis Robichaud and Charlie Dan Roach for sharing their story
  • Various artists from the Revue Musicale Acadienne 1997 
  • Nicolas Jego, Ludivine Larcher, Sonia Idir and Pauline Naillon, French interns and Project coordinators
